About Sergey Rachmaninoff's Morceaux de Fantaisie

This set contains the first pieces recognizably characteristic of Rachmaninoff, showing the 19-year old composer’s increasing confidence and command of his instrument.
The No. 2 Prelude has become one of Rachmaninoff’s most famous pieces. The composer himself expressed some regret that he was more or less forced to play the piece, which reminded him of the church bells of his childhood, in almost every recital he gave for the rest of his life.
